Folks, I'm not sure the Expanse series can get any better. Caliban's War gives us the perfect combination of political intrigue and naval engagement strategy with a heart-tugging mystery thrown in the mix.
On the OPA front, captain James Holden and his crew return to provide humanitarian relief to the residents of Ganymede after a man-made disaster decimates the Jovian moon. As the only living witness to the disaster, MCRN gunnery sergeant Roberta 'Bobbie' Draper is sent to Earth to testify at the Mars-Earth peace summit. Dismissed by her superiors as suffering from post traumatic stress, only the assistant to the UN under-secretary, Chrisjen Avasarala, takes an interest in what Bobbie has to say.
The behind-the-scenes politics turn an already dangerous situation into a powder keg. All that's needed is a spark to set off a three-way battle that could bring about the end of humanity.
It's left to Holden, Bobbie, and Chrisjen to make sure that doesn't happen.
